Research Antibodies Market

Research Antibodies Market Propelled By Increasing R&D Investments In Drug Discovery And Development


The global Research Antibodies market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3785.05 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. Research antibodies are protein molecules which are produced by living organisms in response to antigenic substances called haptens and are extensively utilized across various applications such as Western Blotting, Flow Cytometry, Fura-histochemistry, and Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). They have become indispensable tools for biological and medical research in proteomics, drug development, biomarker exploration, immunology, and therapeutic uses because of their high sensitivity and specificity. With the increasing investments in R&D across pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, the demand for research antibodies is expected to surge during the forecast period.

Market key trends:

Research and development spending on drug discovery and development activities has grown substantially in recent years. Pharmaceutical companies are consistently investing increased funds in R&D activities to develop new drug molecules. Furthermore, growing investments in basic scientific research from government organizations is also propelling the demand for research antibodies. For instance, according to the report of Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), the R&D expenditure of biopharmaceutical companies in the US increased from US$ 49.6 billion in 2012 to US$ 79.6 billion in 2019. The rising R&D expenditure is expected to drive the growth of the Global Research Antibodies Market Size during the forecast period.
